Celebration of the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ


Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. This is a very important Celebration of the Catholic Church. We celebrate the real presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Bread and Blessed Blood. We used to have the Procession, the First Holy Communion for our children. We have prepared the First Holy Communion online for our children so when the time allowed we can celebrate their First Holy Communion. We ask you to pray for them and their families.
This year we have planned that we have the 5 weekend masses as normal. Tomorrow we will expose the Blessed Sacrament online for you to adore and pray from 3pm-5pm.
May God bless you.

Fr John

The evening will begin with a talk at 7:00PM at St Joachim's Parish Lidcombe which will be followed by exposition.

We're also excited to announce our speaker for the evening, Fr Epeli!
